I've been a menstrual cup user for a couple of years now, ever since Carter was born. I really like it and find it SO much easier to deal with than tampons.

This month AF came a few days early and caught me unprepared at work, so I bought a vending machine tampon out of desperation. (It was either that or do the old folded-up toilet paper trick.) By the time I got home a few hours later, I had terrible cramps -- for the first time in years. I used to have cramps a lot, but I hadn't realized that I no longer have them cramps until today.

As soon as I got home, I put the cup in, and less than 5 minutes later the cramps were gone! I've heard other cup users say that the cup helped with their cramps, but I'd never really experienced it for myself until today. :-)

I love the cup, too, although I haven't had a need for one in a while. :)

That's crazy!! I wonder why it helps..I might have to try that because my cramps are a doozie :)

Yay for menstrual cups, indeed! :)
Mine absolutely helped with my cramps.

After having mine for... 3 years? I bought a 2nd one.
Now I have two. That way one stays in my bathroom drawer (my favorite one - Lunette) and the other one stays in my purse/diaper bag with me whenever I go anywhere (Diva - my first cup). They're so small that they don't take up much space.

I hate being caught off guard and using the folded-up-paper trick.
